A private residential community is raised from the seas in Panama – the Dubai of the Central America. The man-made islands off the coast of Panama are named Ocean Reef Islands and are conceived by real estate developer Grupo Los Pueblos. An ambitious development such as Ocean Reef Islands demanded world class exceptional planning and engineering ingenuity. Numerous advisors were contracted to guarantee state of the art engineering. The islands design responds to the requirements of prestigious professional coastal engineering and environmental firms such as URS and Delft Hydraulics. These firms provided the guidelines for the location and forms of the islands in order to produce a rare combination of engineering and ecological beauty.
Delft Hydraulics, the most renowned institution for wave and ocean behavior modeling, studied and analyzed the conditions of waves, currents and environmental storms in the Pacific Ocean to provide the requirements for the most appropriate design of the islands considering safety, constructability and urban living aesthetics.
The view is spectacular, with the Panama Canal and at your backdrop the City’s Old Quarter to the west, while the emerging Costa del Este neighborhood, with its rising skyscrapers and glass facades to the east will serve as the setting for your afternoon tea or glass of wine. To the north, you will find all the offerings of a metropolitan city and to the south, the incomparable beauty of the unspoiled Pearl Islands minutes away by plane or yacht.
